OES has been a leader in Dropped Objects prevention for many years, having developed a suite of Dropped Objects services to fit varying client requirements. The services are detailed below.
The industry leading, static, dropped objects inspection solution. A thorough dropped objects survey is conducted by rope access capable, dropped objects specialists who provide an excellent rig specific follow-up package. The rig crew can use the package to conduct their own follow-up surveys.
An all encompassing, four-stage, Dropped Objects Prevention Program that incorporates rig specific training and suggested client system improvements, created by one of our leading dropped objects experts. It is succeeded by a thorough dropped objects inspection and a tablet based follow-up program, with optional RFID tagging integration. This is the ideal total solution to help eradicate static and dynamic dropped objects, while improving rig crew dropped objects culture.
Dropped Objects e-Learning
Online or offline e-Learning for rig crew and visiting service company personnel, to ensure that everyone is familiar with the rig’s dropped objects prevention culture. OES’ e-Learning covers the dangers and consequences of Potential Dropped Objects, how to prevent them, industry best practices, and recommended guidelines.
Dropped Objects Training
On-site training is a big step towards reducing risk through a better understanding of potential for dropped objects. The majority of dropped objects incidents can be avoided by the crew having a better awareness of the potential for dropped objects through training, improved maintenance, and by spotting a potential dropped object during everyday activities and one-off jobs.
OES Drops Champion
Many of OES’ clients choose one of OES’ Drops Champions to assist them on a temporary or permanent basis. These are Dropped Objects specialists who are available to help your organization improve its approach to Drops.
Apart from upgrade and repair capabilities, Joulon’s portfolio companies DSL and OES provide the following services for derricks, masts and substructures.
- API 4G Cat III & IV inspections
- Bolt change-outs
Additionally, DSL carries the API 4F & 8C licenses, which allows us to offer and execute engineered solutions to any drilling structure related issues.
DRILLING STRUCTURE RECERTIFICATION
It is not unusual for customers to approach us concerned that there is no documentation and/or nameplate evidence of the capacity of their drilling structure. In this situation, the normal procedure is to carry out a structural analysis of the structure based on current member geometry and condition of the structure. DSL has in-house resources to carry out every aspect of these work scopes, from survey and engineering through the installation of any replacement parts or enhancement kit that is determined necessary. The same work scope applies if you need to increase your hook load, setback, or other loads/combinations that are outside the original design criteria of the derrick.
DSL is an API 4F licensed company for drilling structures with the qualifications, accreditation, engineering resources, software, and worldwide locations to support your project needs regarding drilling derrick analysis and associated derrick structural engineering.
Upon completion of the work scope, you will be in possession of all the relevant certification and associated documentation that validates the operational capacity of your API structure.
